The 11.15 Service

After much conversation the 11.15 congregation has decided to return to the hall for the winter. We recognise that the number are such that 11.15 mean that the service may well soon return to the main church building, but given the work that is about to start on the toilets it makes sense to worship in the hall (as space at the front of church may be compromised).

The 11.15 congregation has enjoyed spending time over coffee getting to know other members of church.

Lantern Towers

Some of you may have noticed that the Lantern Towers in church have been lit up recently. Temporary lighting was installed in the towers to assist with access while restoring parts of the church. People have commented how lovely it looks to have the towers lit at night.

We are suggesting people can donate £10 to have the towers lit up in memory of a loved one for a week. The donation and details can be placed in one of the pink envelopes at the back of church (marked for Lantern Tower donations) and placed in the plinth.
